Heartfelt Gifts For Your Special Mom From Hallmark and A Giveaway

I'm having a hard time realizing how fast this year has been going for me. It's May already and soon to be Mother's Day. That being said, this is going to be a tough Mother's Day for me this year. It will be the first one for me without my Mom. She passed away last October 23rd, so celebrating this year is a bitter sweet thing for me as a mom.

But it does not stop me from celebrating some of the other women in my life who are moms and who I love dearly for the impact they have had in my life. So many sweet women have been special and have provided me guidance, advice, examples and an abundance of love, and I want to thank them in special ways for it.

That's why I love these products from Hallmark. They are a part of the heartfelt Ken Sheldon Collection. Each of these products reminds me of how special these women have been to me and will continue to be. Each piece features a beautiful and touching sketch done by Ken between a mom and her child. The tender moments are so sweet and evoke memories for me of my Mom and being a mom.

Honestly it is hard for me to pick which of the items I love the most. Each one reminds me of several women. The mug is so sweet with the image of a mom gazing into the eyes of her sweet baby. It says, "All the love a heart can hold".  I remember moments like that looking at my new borns and being amazed at how much I loved them.

"Some things we hold on to forever" is a statement I can completely agree with. This is stitched on the small throw pillow with a mom hugging her child. As a mom of two grown boys I know I will hold on to a part of them forever. They will always be my babies, much to their chagrin.

But the one thing I lean to a little more than the others is the print of a mom cuddling her child in rest. Ken wrote on this one "And the love only grows".  That statement could not be more true. With each passing year I have loved my kids more and more.

I love how Hallmark has a way of capturing special feelings in a moment. They have some of the most beautiful gifts and sentiments you could wish for, and they have been kind enough to offer this special bundle of gifts to one of my readers. Just use the Rafflecopter below to enter.
